ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Officials with Louisiana State University at Alexandria are touting a plan for a community college to build on its campus.
Central Louisiana Technical Community College is looking at four possible sites to build a new main campus. Besides LSUA, reports The Town Talk, the college is also considering sites in Alexandria, Pineville and at England Airpark.
Paul Coreil, interim chancellor at LSUA, says the community college could save money by building on the university's campus south of Alexandria.
LSUA has underused space, according to a report from the Louisiana Board of Regents, and officials say the community college could use LSUA facilities such as its library, bookstore, child-care center, student housing, and recreation facilities.
The state has approved $19 million for the community college to build a new campus.
